NEWS IN BRIEF: Work has got underway on a news bus stop on the N11 with the intent to remove conflicts between people walking and cycling.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council said: “The construction work of a new bus stop on Stillorgan Road at the junction of Greenfield Road is due to commence on October 22, 2018 with a construction programme of approximately 8 weeks. A Traffic Management Plan will be in place that will consider all road users with traffic disruption kept to a minimum as is reasonably possible.”
“Background to the project: A Technical Engineering Consultant was appointed in March 2018 for the design of a new bus stop on Stillorgan Road at the junction with Greenfield Road. This was to facilitate the relocation of a bus stop on Stillorgan Road near the Mount Merrion Avenue junction on the city bound side of the road.”
“The new design was prepared to remove a regularly occurring conflict at the bus stop between passing cyclists and people waiting at the bus stop due to the narrow footway and cycle track at this location. The final scheme was presented to the Dundrum Area Committee on June 6th, 2018 and to the Dún Laoghaire Area Committee on June 25th, 2018.”
Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
